Timisoara Saracens gearing up for semi-final
It is semi-final weekend in the CEC Bank Super Liga, in Romania, as Saracens Global Network side Timisoara Saracens face Constanta in the final four of Romania’s premier rugby competition.
Defending champions Timisoara Saracens are hoping to win their third successive Super Liga title, but standing in their way are last year’s semi-finalists, Constanta who will be looking to go one step further this year after they narrowly qualified for the semi-final with a 17-16 win over Steaua last weekend.
Timisoara Saracens have won both head to head matches between the two teams this season. The first was a 35-13 win during the regular season and a slightly closer victory, 28-16, during the playoffs.
Not only have Timisoara Saracens beaten Constanta twice at home but they haven’t lost a match this season at the Dan Paltinisanu Stadium.
Timisoara Saracens finished seventeen points ahead of Constanta in the league.
The winner of the match will play the victor of the second semi-final between Baia Mare and CSM Olimpia.
